Lovely as always, refined or in the raw. So glad, you were brave enough to share.


I love these colours and the handling of the paint Natasha, these dreamy effects are what makes watercolour so alluring! Magic Sea 1 is very 'Turner-esque' and it's so interesting to see your initial experimental piece, thank you.


Wow, what a beautiful painting, really uplifting. Thanks for sharing a bit of how you got there, fascinating. Xx

The expressionists among us (I am not one of them) could actually say that the rough sketch is better than the finished piece. As you said in your entry, there's lots of energy in our splashes and doodles. I love your new series, especially because it's less design-oriented and more free-moving. Btw, your sketch would make a beautiful journal cover :)

Thanks for your comments - they're encouraging me to be a little braver in the future and share more of my process! Ersi, as I mentioned to you on twitter, your comment has really started me thinking in a couple of ways...watch this space. ;)
